Education at W5



Education at W5 - Firing the Spirit of Discovery for schools, students, teachers and learners of every age!


At W5 our Education Team is passionate about bringing science to life. Whether you’re a school, a group, a member of the public or just someone who loves to find things out, W5 offers a rich and unique learning environment for all.

Structured to provide the best possible educational experience, interactivity is key at W5. On our exhibition floors schools and the public can explore over 250 interactive science-based exhibits covering topics as diverse as weather, magnetism, flight, nature, space exploration, health, and forensics among many many more.

And while you’re exploring the exhibits, you might want to take a seat in one of our two demonstration areas and enjoy one of our fun science-based shows. There’s a wide range of demos looking at everything from optical illusions to deadly creatures. All shows are entertaining and highly interactive and are free with the price of entry.

For schools we also offer specially developed school workshops which are designed to support the curriculum and inspire students at every key stage with a love of science and learning. STEM is key of course but our goal is to unlock the creativity, as well as the scientist, inside all of our visitors.

A visit to W5 is unique but we can also come to you as we also offer a variety of outreach options for schools and other public events. You can easily book a visit and one of our full-length outreach shows or groups challenges for any occasion and whenever it suits you best.

Finally, with many years of experience in STEM communication the W5 Education Team can provide CPD sessions for teachers and other adult groups – ideal for those who want to learn a new approach to bringing education and learning to life.


Education is at the heart of what we do at W5. Join us and get inspired today.
